After thorough research, I finally nailed down a recent current event immensely impacting the film and entertainment industry. Although, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) is a one of a kind entity, industry leader, and entertainment media organization—they are not prone to controversy. To demonstrate, Kira Hudson Banks wrote an article in the Harvard Business Journal titled, Diversity at the Oscars Is More than a Numbers Game—https://hbr.org/2016/02/diversity-at-the-oscars-is-more-than-a-numbers-game. Kira, critically breaks down how worthy actors are being passed up for Oscar nominations simply because of their race, she, ultimately, analyzes the underlying problem as “Institutional Racism”, in which she ties to
Some examples are the annual Fireworks Show, Run for the Wall, food drive during the fair (3,500 pounds of can goods collected), use of the parking lot for school bus driver training, use of the kitchen for our local 4-H groups to hold their annual BBQ fundraisers, Blue Grass Festival, FFA Awards Dinner, wedding receptions, the Palo Verde High School Homecoming dinner and the High School Prom. In the past six years the fair management has worked hard to raise money by applying for grants and establishing a nonprofit 501 (C)(3) foundation. This money, along with generous donations from individuals, local businesses, local service organizations and the two prisons has been used to maintain the facilities and
If the NCAA modifies their terrible contract that restricts the athletes from any monetary compensation, it will open the door to new beginnings. They will be able to accept endorsement deals and other sponsorship for their image. In no way will it impact negatively on the sport. It would lead to financial freedom. Marx, who have lobbied that the athletes should be receiving a salary, said, “The injustices of fake amateurism would be gone.” (Marx 475).
The 1996 drama film “The Crucible” is written by Arthur Miller and based on his same titled play from 1953. It was directed by Nicholas Hytner, produced by David Picker and Robert Miller and distributed by 20th Century Fox. The movie stars Winona Ryder as Abigail Williams, Daniel Day-Lewis as John Proctor, Bruce Davison as Reverend Parris, Joan Allen as Elizabeth Proctor, Paul Scofield as Judge Thomas Danforth and Rob Campbell as Reverend John Hale. In the play the actions take place at four different places – the anteroom of the courtroom, the jail and the homes of Parris and Proctor, all of them are indoors though. However, in the movie we see both indoor and outdoor places, such as a lake, the jail, Tituba 's and the Putnam 's home and
“Under Justice Roberts’s test, Citizens’ desire to broadcast the film during an election cycle is irrelevant because this desire is a contextual factor that focuses on Citizens’ intent in producing the film” The intent may not have been to sway votes, so there is no reason the speech should be limited, as established here by a Duke Law student, Aaron Harmon. Some may disapprove of these types of contributions to campaigns, but this format helps bring more information to create informed voters. The decision was also very broad. Justice Kennedy, author of the opinion held that “This case cannot be resolved on a narrower ground without chilling political speech, speech that is central to the First Amendment ’s meaning and purpose.”(“CITIZENS UNITED”) Kennedy could have simply said that Citizens could show the film, but it wouldn’t establish much. By broadening the decision, they established a relevant precedent to get rid of unnecessary campaign finance
